What wan a quiet s, sslon of the j
city council ended last night in a
spirited debate between Aldermen !
Annandale and Uryson. on the merits
of the new agreement between the i
city and the harbor engineer. Alderman Annandale, chairman of the harbor committee, rose as a matter of
privilege to refute a statement In the \
press (a report of the last week's ses-1
lion of the council) to the effect that
the engineer would receive more
mon. y than if the old agreement had
been carried out. Following this
Alderman Hryuon then stated that he
was still of the opinion that the new
agreement was the better one���for
the engineer. He ijuoted figures to
offset those given by ihe chairman
of the harbor committee and stated
that   if the reporters had  given  less

Alderman Annandale's contention
that the city was effecting a saving
under the new agreement was supported by the following statement:

had been paid up to January 81, 1H14.

a striking Indication of the efforts^ ^
the body in carrying out a work which
has now become Dominion wide.
So pleased were those present at
the able management of affairs carried out by the retiring officers that,
on motion, the entire list was unanimously re-elected to office.
In the reports read and also the
remarks made by several speakers, including two of the medical fraternity,
the efforts of the order, starting on
a small scale, have enlarged to a ge-
gree where the work is beginning to
be generally appreciated throughout
the city. Especially so has this been
found among citizens who have been
rendered assistance in the way of nursing at such times and under circumstances where the cost of a regular
trained nurse would have been almost
an impossibility. Words of praise
were showered on Miss Downham, tlie
nurse brought to the city in April,
1913, from the headquarters of the order in Ottawa, for her untiring work
in paying visits to various homes situated over the entire city.
The president, Mrs. T. D. Trapp, occupied the chair and in a brief address mentioned the efforts of the I
ladies in organizing the branch and
how it had progressed to such a degree that it was altogether probable
that another nurse would have to be
added to the staff before t'ne present
yea:  was out.

l-ondon, April 6.���By a majority of
80 an amendment for the rejection of
the Home Rule bill was defeated In
the house of commons today and
without division the bill was given
for the third time its second reading
In the house.
The announcement of the figures
evoked louder cheers from the opposition than from the ministerialists,
the opposition Interpreting them as
gratifying proof of a dwindling government majority. But the diminution is accounted for to some extent
by the abstention from voting of the
The Olive  Branch.
The speeches today were generally
much more conciliatory in tone than
those which marked the bill's earlier
passages. John E. Redmond, the
Nationalist leader, who opened the
debate, again held out the olive
branch to Ulster in a speech of impressing eloquence, but insisted that
it was impossible for him and his
colleagues to agree to the permanent
exclusion of Ulster and to abandon
in principle of Ireland a nation.

leader, although professing in certain
passages of his speech to see hardly

Every now and again some jingoist rises to warn
the world that it is on the verge of a great war, that relations between certain powers are so strained as to justify the conclusion that an outbreak of hostilities is imminent. There have been times when these alarmists received considerable attention, more attention perhaps
than they deserved, but the present is not one of those
periods. As a matter of fact most of the great nations
appear to be too busy with internal problems to give
thought to waging war on each other and it is doubtful if

ertia and actual wholesale poverty, the result of overweening militarism, which is sapping the strength of the imperial Hohenzollern throne. Trade in Germany is dead;
there is no work for the laborer and bread is scarce. Germany too is busy at home.
Russia still is staggering under the load let down on
her shoulders by her defeat at the hands of the Japanese.
P'urther, the Russian government is very much embarrassed at the present. The present czar is weak and his
heir is not expected to live to mount the throne. There is
no strong arm of the Romanoffs in sight and the masses
are gaining fresh freedom every day. Persecution has
failed to keep them down and the bureaucracy is at last,
though reluctantly, forced to recognize the people. So
Russia has no time to think of war.
Austria presents much the same spectacle, though
perhaps in a more advanced degree. The aged emperor
cannot last much longer and with his death a split in the
dual monarchy is looked for. A war would bring ruin only
the more quickly.
The United States, as a commercial nation, has its
new currency legislation to perfect and its regional bank-
system to get into working order. It also has its Panama
canal to open and test and its tolls question to decide. Anyway, the United States does not want war unless Mexico
forces her hand.
Japan is the only one left and Japan's naval program
will not be in shape for active use for another year at
least. Also Japan is heavily in debt, the country is overtaxed and it has to solve a poverty problem much akin to
the one which faces Germany.
It is a curious fact that while there are any amounl
of international problems vexing the diplomats of the
powers, any one of which would have been enough to precipitate hostilities a few decades back, each nation today
has a pressing trouble of its own which precludes the possibility of a struggle with another power till the internal
wound is healed.

Everyone who has lived in a country parish knows the Intense rivalry

This rivalry sometimes leads to bitter
feuds between neighbors, and the result of such a feud was tried be.'ore
the Bath Bench.
A western man was charged with
doing wilful damage to the vegetables
of a successful exhibitor, and the
plaintiff showed beans, onions, cabbages, and marrows which had been
ruined by having needles thrust Into
them. The defendant admitted his
guilt, but said that he had had doubts
as to whether the plaintiff showed
bis own produce, and had adopted
this  method of  finding out.
There was a similar but worst

Discharged workmen have been

selves.   Still lt Is important to eucour- | of  the   Prussian   diet.    According   to
the figures here given the government
ln the space of 27 years has spent no
less than ��45,000,COO in Its attempts
to provide a Prussian rather than a
Polish ownership of the land.
The figures of the past year are Illuminating in this respect. In the
course of 12 months the co-called
colonizing committee bought no fewer than 37 estates and 25 smaller
properties, 49,000 acres In all. Of this
land, however, scarcely a quarter was
owned by Poles, so that although
��.'13,000 of government money went
into Polish hands the land bought
only amounted to 12,500 acres. This
is far beyond the average, since the
proportion hitherto has been more
than one-third. This fact is significant since it shows the Increased prosperity of the Polish agriculturists.
The stronger position of the Polish
agriculturist Is shown in other ways
also. Scarcely a week goes by without a cry of dismay from the "Junkers" because some big estate held by
a Oerman aristocrat Is bought up not
by a flerman but by a Pole. The total result is that in spite of official
expenditure to the extent of ��45,000,-
000 in 27 years, and great outlays by
the "Junker" leagues, the Poles hold
more land than ever before.
The last 12 years have produced a
very important alteration in the Prussian Polish question on the Polish
side. The Poles have shown themselves better agriculturists; their labor
is cheaper, their management better

I will probably be settled in the courts
j according to action taken by the Hur-

As a reply to tax notices sent out,

I with the information that It owned the
' land  in  question even though it was
registered   under   the   liame   of   Mr.

legislature, the district lot is exempt

Accept Resignation.
A further reorganization of the
municipal hall staff was adopted lust
night following the acceptance of the
resignation of Comptroller XV. Griffiths. The office will be abolished
ami in its place a post of treasurer-
collector was made with Richard Bolton filling the position.
Financial Condition.
Chairman Rose of the finance com-
Tnlttee made a preliminary n port on
the financial situation although tew
figures were available. A further report will probably be made at the next
meeting at which time it I.s thought
tlit, estimates for the various committees will be tentatively agreed upon.
Councillor Rose first mentioned the
receipt of $1,1,'17,500, the proceeds of
the treasury certificate sale to Spit-
zer. Itorick and company, less $3600
for hank commission and insurance.
This sum will he used to liquidate the

lon appears to exist ill certain sections
Of the municipality that several gangs

assessment completed, the,council can

At a meeting Of the board of works
h'Ul previous to the council session
$100,000 was set aside for roads and

Ihe Man Who Assembled Three Hun-
dred Thousand Word* Into a sin-
gle Work With All Their Subtle
Shades of Meaning Is a Scotsman
and a llorn Lexicographer ��� He
Has Spent 84 Years on the Task.
, To marsball more than 300,000
words in perfect order, to trace their
ancestry, often along the faintest
paths of the past and beyond the regions 01 history, to show bow change
has left its mark upon them, to set
lorlh their partnerships, to unmask
tnem ln their disguises, to discover
what various meanings men ln all
times and places have ascribed to
1 bem���In a word, to produce the
New Knglish Dictionary." that Is
the stupendous literary labor which,
with the publication of a further sec-
111111 of Sir James Murray's life's
work, reaches the end of another of
11s  concluding stages.
Three hundred thousand words.
Such is the size and might of the
English language ��� 300,000 main,
compound, and subordinate words,
made out of thc raw material of 26
li'iters, and minted from every important language ln the world.
When you think of this colossal
work, and when you meet the general
who commands this huge parade of
the English language, it is only natural to think tirst of Dr. Johnson,
who railed the ee.rliest roll-call ot the
words of our tongue���to compare the
I wo men and their works. Dr. John-
sou began his dictionary at the age
of thirty-nine; Sir James Murray
was forty-two when he rommenced
his groat lifework. lioth were wrong
in their calculations as to the time the
labor would take. Dr. Johnson "had
no doubt" that he could linish hiB
task In three years, and when Dr.
Adams objected that the French Ac?.-
deiny of forty persons took forty
years to complete their dictionary,
tbe doctor growled out: "Sir, thus lt
is. This is the proportion, Let me
see; forty times forty, ls 1,600. As
three to 1,600, so is the proportion
of an Englishman to a Frenchman."
Dr. Johnson, during the seven
years, poured out many other works;
he received but little help; be was
troubled with bad health, lie made
many mistakes; he put into his work
expressions of his own likes, and
bates, epigrammatic and mordant
Bashes from his own mind, such as:
Patriotism.���Love of country; tbe
last refuge of a scoundrel.
Oats.���A grain which in England Is
generally given to horses, but In Scotland supports the people.
Pension.���In Kngland generally
undemtood to mean, pay given lo a
state hireling for treason to his country.
And how the two works differ in
magnitude! Let me take a couple of
instances at random. Under the let-
te-r "N" down to the word "niche'
Johnson gave 284 words; Sir James
Murray gives 3,469. In the first case
there are 833 quotatirnB to illustrate
the use of the words; in the second,
Sir James Murray is the Ideal dictionary maker; wide as the poles
asunder is he from that curious mixture of characteristic which went to
make Dr. Johnson. Like Dr. Johnson,
he has erred in one thing. He
thought that his dictionary would be
completed in twelve years, but be
told uie a little while ago. "1 hope
we shall tlnlsh It In four years' time
��� In 1917. In tha' year I shall be
eighty, and shall celebrate my golden wedding, So we must have a triple feast."
It was at a Ume when th s veteran
was working tlfte-n hours a day-
"tiarder than I have ever worked in
my life before!" ��� that I disturbed
him In his Utile clearing-house of the*
Etigllab language. It Is now nearly
thirty years since the dictionary's
"bom*"���tbe Scriptorium, it is called
���a house of wood and corrugated
Iron, was er.-cted at the rear of Sir
James' suburban residence at Oxford.
And thirty-four years of unremitting labor in this unique workshop
bas not dimmed the enthusiasm of
the great dirt'onary maker, He

night and today a whole menagerie of
pets was taken in charge by the police as a sei|iiel to the arrest yesterday of James Ryan, Charles Q, Murphy and Ida Walker, suspected of a
series of house robberies covering the

The pets, which included two dogs,
two valuable cats, two gold fish, a
canary liird, and 21 chickens, were
found in a room in the flat at 2010
Ninth street south, occupied by Murphy and his wife, who also went under the name of Walker.
Clothing worth $1,500 was taken
away, but the animals wen- turned
over to Officer A. L. Bean of the Humane society, who made arrangements
with Mrs. 11. Ardson, next door, ta
care for them all, except the canary
bird, which has become the mascot of
the Sou.'h Side police station. In return Mrs. Ordson is to have the eggs
from the chickens.

Some prominent artists nre behind

while' by no means accepting all the
claims of the cubists and futurists,
freely admit that ihey have led a'r

and that exhibitions from .'.hich Ihev
are excluded seem dull and tame. In

have succeeded In being accepted as
